November 4, 2022 — Ontological Implications of “Withnessing”

[11 pages]

Ofra Eshel’s writings have explored a fundamental dimension of analytic work created by the analyst’s “presencing” (being there) within the patient’s experiential world and the grip of the analytic process and the ensuing deep patient-analyst interconnectedness or “withnessing” that may grow into at-one-ment with the patient’s innermost emotional reality of unthinkable breakdown and catastrophic psychic trauma.  With profound ontological implications, she goes beyond recent analytic notions of intersubjectivity and witnessing to more radical patient-analyst deep-level analytic oneness.

Ofra Eshel, PsyD, is a faculty member, training and supervising analyst of the Israel Psychoanalytic Society and Institute. She has written extensively.

Eshel, O. (2020). “Out of the Depths I Cry to You;” Into the dark unknown – two-in-oneness. Psychoanalytic Inquiry, 40, 109-119
